A 91-year-old woman with dementia disappeared from her home Monday night.

Josephine Totterdale stands 5-feet-5 and weighs 130 pounds. She wore a “gray fuzzy robe,” blue jeans and blue slip-on sneakers when last seen at 10 p.m. Oct. 8, according to the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office.

Ms. Totterdale left the home on Coopers Hawk Drive, just east of town.

“Josephine has dementia and other medical issues,” the sheriff’s office said in an alert Tuesday morning.

Deputies will use drones over the area in the search.

Anyone has information should call the sheriff’s office at 540-347-3300.
